    i hadn't heard back from my first place for like a month so taking the advice from here i called them this morning - the woman said that they haven't looked at it yet but when they do she'll let me know asap. But now when i checked gttr it says

    decision: Stop; Offer text: Interview timing (app/inst).

    what does this mean?

    I would hazard a guess it means that they've decided to offer you an interview but they don't know when yet so they can't fill in the interview box properly (as they write the interview date in it) but they need to "stop" your application from being automatically rejected by GTTR and sent to your next choice, which is what happens if the university doesn't reply to you within a set period of time. Although I think they have two months so its odd they are putting it in now.

    I have no idea though - contact them and clarify it would be the best bet seeing as you only spoke to them this morning.

    I would guess this too.

    how is asking for clarification being pushy?
    the "stop" as a form of decision isn't listed in the GTTR faq section as I've checked so they can't expect you to know what it means, meaning if anything, it shows you're taking an interest in your application
